Oxford Companion to J.M.W.Turner – Addenda and Corrigenda

Oxford Companion to J.M.W.Turner –  Addenda and Corrigenda

When this appeared in 2001 it was remarked that it was inadequate at many points.  In addition new information has appeared since.  One deficiency was a lack of an index.  In place of that, there needs to be a lot of cross-referencing.  Some subjects may have been slipped in under some heading or other, but to all intents and purposes are lost.

The following are some of the headings I noted at the time of subjects omitted or inadequately or wrongly treated. The aim is to fill these entries out gradually. Other are invited to make additions of both topics and information.   Some topics are so huge (eg Colour) that reference to main discussions should suffice in large part?
